Your message is super important and you want to share it but you don’t have the time nor tools to do it justice. You’re looking for the secret sauce to make it come to life.
If you’ve ever spent hours on end searching for the perfect typeface, have gone down the rabbit hole of Instagram stalking beautiful posts that you can never quite create, or have felt that there has to be a better way to get your point across besides using tired stock photography, I can help you. One of the best ways to get your message noticed without being stale, fluffy, or boring is hand-lettering.
Hand-lettering is customized lettering that's created with your vision and mission in mind. Picture it: something that is unique to you and your business without looking like you dropped your text into a template that everyone else is using across the internet. It captures the tone of your brand, makes your viewers feel like you totally get them, and communicates what you’re all about.
Hand-lettering helps you stand out in a saturated marketplace. It elevates your brand to the next level by providing a unique visual style that puts your message first. Hand-lettering helps to build a memorable brand - the unique combination of lettering and messaging is what will keep your customers coming back for more.
Almost anything you can imagine! Hand-lettering can be used for logos, physical products, favorite quotes, social media posts, book covers, or magazine articles. It can also be used for large scale murals, chalkboard signs, or other environmental graphics. From digital products to IRL murals, hand-lettering has a place in all the things.
You know that your brand has a kick ass message and your graphics should reflect that. Hand-lettering is one of the best ways to do just that. You have a general idea of what you need but here’s where it really shines:
A professional logo that doesn’t skimp on boldness
Social media graphics that aren’t stale or boring
A lettered manifesto that speaks your (visual) language
Editorial graphics in the form of a book cover or magazine spread
A custom look that can’t be replicated by a typeface or anyone who knows how to work a layout app on their phone
Someone else to create your graphics for you. Your genius should be used on what you do best, not laboring over what your visuals need to look like
Seriously, wouldn’t it be amazing to take your brand from pretty rad to “holy shit that looks fan-freakin-tastic”?! I take all of your insights, messaging, and values and create custom hand-lettered, illustrated graphics that are unique and timeless to your business.
If you've been playing branding roulette and can't seem to settle on a style or logo...
If your constant rebrands are sending the signal that you don't know who you are or what you're doing...
If you've been embarrassed to send people to your website because it doesn't look on the outside like how awesome it is on the inside...LISTEN UP.
I create using a concept-first approach. That means I use what your business mission and personality is all about as the core of your visual language. When your hand-lettering is steeped in that meaning, you don’t have to resort to using the latest design trends to stand out and stay relevant. Your visuals are able to stand the test of time because they’re built on the strength of your mission and message.
As a graphic designer with over ten years experience working with heavy-hitter brands like Hasbro, MOO, Tiffany Han, and Being Boss, I know a thing or two about what makes a brand successful. I provide custom hand-lettering that is paired with a deep knowledge of how to create a brand identity that is steeped in meaning. When you combine strategic design for brands with hand-lettering, you get an unstoppable force of nature (or a really kick ass visual identity that doesn’t feel like anyone else’s). I provide big picture visuals while geeking out on the nitty gritty details. I’m a dreamer and pragmatist, which makes me a little bit like a magical unicorn of bad assery.
